Express Scripts Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results

Provides Initial 2013 Earnings Guidance

ST. LOUIS, Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Express Scripts Holding Company (Nasdaq: ESRX) announced 2012 fourth quarter and full year net income attributable to Express Scripts shareholders from continuing operations of $515.9 million and $1,340.5 million, or $0.62 and $1.79 per diluted share, respectively. Adjusted earnings per share attributable to Express Scripts from continuing operations, as detailed in Table 4 were $1.05 and $3.74 per diluted share for the fourth quarter and full year, respectively.

"2012 was a monumental year for Express Scripts as we closed the acquisition of Medco and made significant progress integrating the two companies," stated George Paz, chairman and chief executive officer. "Our financial performance in 2012 was strong, and as we look to the future, we are well positioned to capitalize on the complementary strengths of the combined organization, which enhance our ability to improve health outcomes, lower health care costs and continue to deliver long-term growth."

Fourth Quarter 2012 Review (Results from continuing operations on an adjusted basis where indicated. See Tables 2 and 3)

All key metrics compared to 2011 were affected by the inclusion of Medco results beginning in the second quarter of 2012. Gross profit margin and EBITDA per adjusted claim increases over last year are mainly attributed to improved operating performance, increased generic utilization and realization of synergies.

  • Adjusted claims of 410.8 million, up 111%
  • Gross profit of $2.3 billion, up 160%
  • EBITDA of $1.6 billion, up 131%
  • EBITDA per adjusted claim of $4.01, up 10%
  • Cash flow from operations of $2.6 billion, compared to $0.5 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011

Full Year 2012 Review (Results from continuing operations on an adjusted basis where indicated. See Tables 2 and 3)

  • Adjusted claims of 1,395.7 million, up 86%
  • Gross profit of $7.5 billion, up 123%
  • EBITDA of $5.4 billion, up 103%
  • EBITDA per adjusted claim of $3.87, up 9%
  • Cash flow from operations of $4.8 billion, including merger-related costs, up from $2.2 billion in 2011

Due to the Federal Holiday on February 18, 2013, the Company expects to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on Tuesday, February 19, 2013. However, in connection with this earnings release, the contents of the Form 10-K substantially in the form expected to be filed on Tuesday, February 19, 2013, are expected to be made available to the public on the "Investor Information" section of the Company's website at approximately 4:00 pm Eastern Time (3:00 p.m. Central Time) on Monday, February 18, 2013 at www.express-scripts.com/corporate. The Form 10-K, as filed with the SEC, will replace that document on the Company's website as soon as practicable following its filing with the SEC.

2013 Guidance

The Company expects to achieve adjusted earnings per diluted share from continuing operations for 2013 in the range of $4.20 to $4.30, or 12% to 15% growth over 2012. Adjusted earnings per share for 2013 exclude items as detailed in Table 6.

  • Total adjusted claims are expected to grow 5% to 7% from 1,395.7 million adjusted claims reported in 2012
  • Selling, general and administrative expense is expected to decline 8% to 10% from $2,365.9 million reported on an adjusted basis in 2012
  • EBITDA per adjusted claim is expected to grow 15% to 18% from $3.87 reported on an adjusted basis in 2012
  • Effective tax rate is expected to be approximately 39%
  • Diluted shares outstanding is expected to be in a range of 825 million to 835 million

The Company is providing adjusted EBITDA excluding the impact of non-recurring charges in order to compare the underlying financial performance to prior periods.


EBITDA is earnings before other income (expense), interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or alternatively calculated as operating income plus depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is presented because it is a widely accepted indicator of a company's ability to service indebtedness and is frequently used to evaluate a company's performance. EBITDA, however, should not be considered as an alternative to net income, as a measure of operating performance, as an alternative to cash flow, as a measure of liquidity or as a substitute for any other measure computed in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. In addition, our definition and calculation of EBITDA may not be comparable to that used by other companies.


Adjusted EBITDA per adjusted claim is a supplemental measurement used by analysts and investors to help evaluate overall operating performance. We have calculated adjusted EBITDA excluding certain charges recorded each year, as these charges are not considered an indicator of ongoing company performance. Adjusted EBITDA per adjusted claim is calculated by dividing adjusted EBITDA by the adjusted claim volume for the period. This measure is used as an indicator of EBITDA performance on a per-unit basis. Adjusted EBITDA, and as a result, adjusted EBITDA per adjusted claim, are affected by the changes in claim volumes between retail and mail-order, the relative representation of brand-name, generic and specialty pharmacy drugs, as well as the level of efficiency in the business.

Footnotes


(1) Includes home delivery, specialty and other including: (a) drugs distributed through patient assistance programs (b) drugs we distribute to other PBMs' clients under limited distribution contracts with pharmaceutical manufacturers and (c) FreedomFP claims.


(2) Total adjusted claims reflect home delivery claims multiplied by 3, as home delivery claims typically cover a time period 3 times longer than retail claims.


(3) Amortization of legacy Express Scripts intangible assets include amounts in both revenues and selling, general and administrative expense. Revenue amortization is related to the customer contract with WellPoint which consummated upon closing of the NextRx acquisition in 2009. Under U.S. GAAP standards, amortization of intangibles that arise in connection with consideration given to a customer by a vendor is characterized as a reduction of revenues. Intangible amortization of $28.5 million ($17.1 million and $17.9 million net of tax in 2012 and 2011, respectively) is included as a reduction to revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011. Intangible amortization of $114.0 million ($68.8 million and $71.9 million net of tax in 2012 and 2011, respectively) is included as a reduction to revenue for the year ended December 31, 2012 and 2011.

 

In addition, intangible amortization of $10.2 million ($6.1 million and $6.4 million net of tax in 2012 and 2011, respectively) is included in selling, general and administrative expense in the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011. Intangible amortization of $40.7 million ($24.5 million and $25.7 million net of tax in 2012 and 2011, respectively) is included in selling, general and administrative expense in the year ended December 31, 2012 and 2011.


(4) Non-recurring transaction and integration costs include those directly related to the acquisition of Medco Health Solutions, Inc. ("Medco").

 

Costs of $16.0 million ($10.4 million net of tax) and $49.7 million ($30.0 million net of tax) for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively, primarily composed of integration-related activities, are included in cost of revenues.

 

Costs of $131.3 million ($85.0 million net of tax) and $42.2 million ($26.4 million net of tax) primarily composed of severance costs, including stock compensation, are included in selling, general and administrative expense in the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Costs of $697.2 million ($420.7 million net of tax) and $62.5 million ($39.4 million net of tax) are included in selling, general and administrative expense in the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

 

The Company recorded a net benefit of $0.5 million ($0.4 million net of tax) and net charges of $8.2 million ($4.9 million net of tax) within selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively, in conjunction with the strategic decision to exit various businesses.


(5) In December 2011, the Company recorded an accrual of $30 million ($18.9 million net of tax) as an offset to revenues for the year ended December 31, 2011 related to a client contractual dispute.


(6) Amortization of intangible assets related to the acquisition of Medco of $472.9 million ($289.6 million net of tax) and $1,433.7 million ($865.2 million net of tax) for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively is included in selling, general and administrative expense.


(7) Financing costs include fees related to the amortization of remaining bridge loan fees, commitment fees related to the new credit agreement and interest and fees on the senior notes secured in conjunction with the acquisition of Medco. Costs of $63.1 million ($39.5 million net of tax) is included in interest expense in the three months ended December 31, 2011. Costs of $85.2 million ($52.3 million net of tax) and $105.0 million ($66.2 million net of tax) is included in interest expense for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.


(8) Provision for income taxes includes discrete tax benefits of $51.7 million and $8.2 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively. These items primarily relate to adjustments to prior year income tax return filings partially offset by a reversal of the deferred tax asset previously established for transaction-related costs that became nondeductible upon the consummation of the Merger.


(9) Net income from discontinued operations, net of tax includes $8.1 million ($5.0 million net of tax) and $25.1 million ($15.2 million net of tax) of amortization of intangible assets related to the acquisition of Medco for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively.

 

In addition, net income from discontinued operations, net of tax for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively includes a benefit of $3.7 million ($2.3 million net of tax) and charges of $7.8 million ($4.8 million net of charges) in conjunction with the strategic decision to exit various businesses.


(10) Adjusted EPS will exclude amortization of intangible assets. The current estimate of full year amortization based on the preliminary purchase price allocation for the Medco transaction. The preliminary purchase price allocation may be subject to further refinement and may result in significant changes.


(11) Adjusted EPS will exclude Medco-related transaction, integration and other non-recurring costs, including premium on early retirement of debt. The full-year impact of these costs have yet to be determined.

Appendix

Additional Notes


The Company now recognizes net income attributable to non-controlling interest which represents the share of net income allocated to members in consolidated affiliates. This share of net income was previously included within selling, general and administrative costs on the consolidated statement of operations. This classification impacted all quarters in 2012 and the third and fourth quarters of 2011 and did not impact net income attributable to Express Scripts shareholders.

 

During the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company determined that portions of the business within the Other Business Operations segment were not core to future operations and committed to a plan to dispose of these businesses. Consequently, results for the year ended December 31, 2012 have been adjusted for the discontinued operations of these businesses. This adjustment for discontinued operations impacts the second, third and fourth quarters of 2012.
